The tea makes me think of Harney’s Dorchester blend. It is a brisk and full bodied tea. The flavor is not a malty as Dorchester. Instead, the flavor is citric, flirting with bitter or maybe sour but not quite crossing the line.
The addition of sweetener and cream takes the edge off without off powering the blend.
A nice morning tea. I did try it chilled and in the afternoon and it maintained its heartiness. I think it would make a nice alternative to morning coffee, though I still prefer Irish Breakfast or Harney’s Golden Blend (though the price off Kangaita OP keeps it in the running for another order).
2nd steep was slightly milder but still full of flavor.
Flavors: Citrus, Malt
